"Shadows of Empire: Decline and Transformations of a Global Vision"

updated: 
Tuesday, January 19, 2021 - 10:07am
Franco Laguna Correa / University of Pittsburgh
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 30, 2021

Recent political transatlantic events, from the culmination of the Brexit to the attempt of coup in Washington D.C. in January, demand new interpretations of the declining role of populist political formations of the 21st century. On the one hand, Trump's America aspired to the establishment of a totalitarian regime that would counterbalance the emergence of China as a global political leader; on the other, the negotiations leading to the Brexit revealed a kind of British exceptionalism that is not at all new in relation to continental Europe.

Announcing the Reframing Hollywood series at Mississippi University Press, January 2021

 

The Reframing Hollywood series will feature dynamic and original short monographs and edited collections, each of which explore a single film of significant cultural impact which has emerged from the American film industry since the turn of the new millennium. These vibrant critical explorations of contemporary American film will offer a stimulating, academic, yet accessible interrogation of a single work from a variety of critical perspectives.

 

Religion in American Literature

updated: 
Tuesday, January 12, 2021 - 11:17am
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) Annual Conference (Nov. 11-14, 2021)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

 

This session examines the relationship between religion and American literature. It welcomes papers that explore the intersectionality between religion, politics, and literature.  How can literary texts help us understand the discourses of the religious right or the left and their search for community?  How does faith contribute both to harmful or positive visions of community?  What can literature teach us about the type of faith that will allow us to create and embrace “the beloved community” introduced by Josiah Royce, and later highlighted by Martin Luther King, Jr.?

Proposals that engage with the conference theme of "City of God, City of Destruction” are of particular interest.

Call for Papers - How is patriotism defined in 21st Century America?

updated: 
Tuesday, January 12, 2021 - 11:15am
Journal of Veterans Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 5, 2021

Within the scholarly realm, patriotism has often been researched within social sciences, humanities, but there is little published research through the lens of veteran studies. Patriotism in America has evoked passionate responses from both non-veterans as well as veterans but what does it mean to be patriotic in America in the 21st century?  Has the meaning of patriotism changed from the last century?  Is American patriotism accessible across social and cultural boundaries, is it an aspirational idea for some, or is it an outdated social construct in an ever-evolving society?  How can patriotism be measured?

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

From the moment the clock struck midnight (or so it seems) on January 1, a climate of uncertainty has loomed over the year 2020: a contentious presidential campaign, the mismanagement of a global pandemic, and widespread civil unrest over egregious acts of racial injustice have thrown the United States into a state of disarray. These incidents, the result of the outgoing administration’s efforts to disrupt and upend traditional governing institutions, have instilled unparalleled levels of uncertainty and distrust in the American public. Nowhere is this more obvious in contemporary American life than recently conducted surveys suggesting public confidence in a COVID-19 vaccine is well under the 70% threshold needed to achieve herd immunity.
